10 years ago I did murals on the walls of a new dental office for Dr. Shamsi Bhanji. Kids Dental Haven in Seattle is a pediatric specialty dental practice, all her clients are infants and young children. Now Dr. Bhanji had moved her office to another space in the same complex and wanted to do new murals in a similar vein.

I kept to a similar style as before; it allows a lot of area to be addressed economically by using a solid line that is colored in an off-register look. The composition is gentle and playful, meant to evoke a book of nursery rhymes or stories. Imaginary birds and flowers fill a world of children making music.

All work was done with Golden Acrylics directly on the sheetrock wall over a 3 day weekend. There will be another phase to the project later this spring when the entry area is reconfigured.
